EXCLUSIVE SIZE? X ASICSTIGER GEL-LYTE OG ‘JAPANESE BASEBALL’
To pay homage to the passion shared by the Japanese for Baseball, size? has come together with ASICSTIGER to collaborate on one of the original innovators from the brand’s archive, the GEL-Lyte OG. First introduced to the country in 1872, Baseball is by far Japan’s most popular sporSng pasSme. The country has produced a wealth of talent over the years that have in turn, made their way overseas and into the ranks of the MLB. Travelling to games to support your local team appears to be a right of passage for many fans of the game, and for many it serves as a family tradiSon for fathers to take their sons and daughters to events to share the enjoyment.
Paying close aXenSon to the details throughout, we’ve made use of a mulStude of materials that directly reference the sport; a light grey saSn serves as both the sidewall underlay and toe box, the same kind use to create the Jerseys worn out on the field. Tonal cross sStching surrounding the heel counter and sidewall give a nod to that found on the baseball itself, and the contrasSng leather stripes on either side of the upper are close representaSons to that of a pitcher’s glove.
Limited to just 500 pairs worldwide, the size? x ASICSTIGER GEL-Lyte OG ‘Japanese Baseball’ will be available through the size? Previews App and in all size? stores, SRP £90.00/ euros 110
